Texas-based artist Lauster (b. 1969) created ten fragmentary Carrara marble tablets and carved phrases in them using a font reminiscent of the ones used on monuments. The blocks of stone seemingly speak essential truths—such as language from American founding documents, various militias and splinter group manifestos, and parts of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty—uniting fundamental phrases intended for entirely different purposes and obscuring their original meanings. Hrs. Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m., closed Mon. For more information, 817-738-1933, www.cartermuseum.org/exhibitions. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd.
